Police will prepare a report for the coroner after a man died in collision at Yelgun on Friday.

Upon arrival, a 67-year-old Ocean Shores man who was the driver, and only occupant, of a Toyota Camry was located trapped. He was released after a short time and conveyed to Tweed Heads District Hospital in a serious condition, where he later died.
